The new movie Bully was released limitedly this past weekend. It has received acclaim for bringing to light what appears to be a world-wide problem.

Bullies have been around seemingly from the dawn of time. Many of us have experienced being bullied, whether on the playground or in some other life venue. But, with the popularity of social media many say the problem has escalated, leading some teens to take their own lives rather than put up with the ridicule.

What do you think -- Is the problem of bullying worse today? Why?

Has bullying become an epidemic, or are we making too much of it?
